We’re All Turkmenbashi On This Bus

Wanting to name things after yourself is normal. Unfortunately few of us get the opportunity. Well, other than naming private body parts after ourselves. The leader of Turkmenistan, however, has plenty of opportunity, seeing as how he’s a dictator. He decreed that everyone in the country is to call him Turkmenbashi (Leader of All the Turkmen), had his face put on the country’s paper money, named a Caspian Sea port city after himself, declared that the month of January is to be called Turkmenbashi, and now has opened an amusement park in the capital named “The World of Turkmenbashi Tales.” Hey, naming a theme park after yourself worked out okay for that Disney guy.
